The hotel is charming & chic with lots & lots of old world ambience. The rooms were quite large, fabulously furnished and the beds were extremely comfortable and luxurioius, although the bathrooms were a little disappointing! The staff were extremely professional, informative and friendly and although the location is a little off the Shopping track, you can catch a trolley... More

Staying at the Fairmont was such a treat. We stayed in a corner Suite, it was enormous, elegant and I wanted to stay for ever. The service and the staff were the best part of our stay. Each staff person truly went out of their way to take care of our needs. The only complaint is that their in-room dining... More

Very over priced and over rated. Service was substandard as was the food. The valet fee was $56.00 per night plus an additional 14% tax to boot. The size of the room and bathroom were extremely disappointing. We will think twice before staying at the San Francisco Fairmont again.

A historical hotel and location, this is a first class experience with service and staff that made us feel at home and at ease. If we needed help or services they were fantastic, and if we were just passing through the lobby to get back to our room there was no unnecessary formality or solicitations. Every person we encountered from... More

An excellent hotel. Generally, in the past, I've found Fairmonts to be old and outdated. But the SF Fairmont was a nice surprise. Wonderful staff and very nicely (recent) updated rooms. Elegantly decorated in a modern scheme, with a walk-in closet! Overall, room felt quite clean, however there was a rather large smudge/hand print on one of the vanity mirrors.... More

Beautifully renovated,.from new carpet to wallpapers. Nicely furnished rooms. I like that hertz Is in the lobby. We had room service three times, it was very good. I also like the selection of bath products they use. My only suggestion..I would like a mini bar with cold drinks and slippers would be nice..The beds are very very comfy. I would... More

I stayed at the Fairmont San Francisco while attending the CMM conference in early April 2014. I came in before usual check in time but luckily my room was ready for me. They placed me in a newly renovated room on the 5th Floor. It was nice looking room with a city view. Le Labo bathroom amenities in case you're... More

We stayed at the hotel in April of this year. We got a great deal of $199, so we decided to see what all the talk was about. I had wanted to stay here for years. The first impressions of the hotel when we walked in were, "WOW!" The lobby is gorgeous! We checked in quickly and headed up to... More

We stayed at the Fairmont in April 2014; we had a very good deal of $199 per room in the original building. The rooms had recently been renovated, and the furnishings were gorgeous! We paid for a queen, but was upgraded to a queen double. The room was huge, with a walk-in closet, a sofa, and a marble bathroom. The... More

It was more than I needed ! I just needed a bed & bath. I was always sight seeing and checking the different restaurants. Next time I will try a little less elegance. The hotel is very grand and beautiful.
